Very good food. Give u plenty to eat. Had steak fajitas and they were excellent. Pot pie looks scrumptious. Only disappointment is they don’t give a military discount. Little on pricey side

Stopped here for lunch with wife after Ohio State appointment. Service was lousy and food not much better. My wife could not eat her chicken dish and my fried fish was so so. We were there on a snowy Wednesday at 2:00 so they were...More

Flatbread was truly awful. Bottled beer was good. Don’t bother unless you are interested in televised sports. Really — don’t bother.

This is a popular sports bar. Always crowded with people on the weekends and game days. Love their nachos and sweet potato waffle fries.

I attended a large gathering in the party room last evening. The wait staff were very good, friendly, fast and efficient. The food and drink orders were correct, which was a huge surprise considering the amount of people moving around and the noise level in...More

I would never come here again. I honestly do not think my server made any eye contact with anyone at our table. She didn't get our order correct and never apologized for the error. Once the food came out it was great. However, I would...More

We were staying pretty close to this place so we decided to try it for dinner, finding a parking spot was a challenge. There was a reasonable selection of menu items to choose from. They offer appetizers like ahi tuna nachos, an interesting choice of...More

The food was excellent and so was the service. I had a sirloin steak and my daughter had a shrimp pasta dish. Would highly recommend.

This restaurant is very similar to other chain bar-type restaurants. The food is average, the selection is average. There was nothing outstanding but nothing terrible either. I wouldn't make a special trip to go there but might go there again if in the area.

I am not the manager at the restaurant, but I do believe they offer call ahead seating...but your best bet would be to contact them in advance of your visit.

I'm not sure I understand the question? This Champps is in a shopping center with lots of free parking. On a busy day, you may have to park a little further away (the restaurant is near the theater so it may fill up closer... More

A modest little restaurant where locals meet up to catch the game and where neighbors become friends. We continue to take pride in preparing made-to-order comfort food every day. Private and semi-private rooms available for large parties.
